Visiting Burnham for business, this became a home away from home for 2 weeks. The food was excellent as was the service. Great Staff - Great place to eat! Stu

“Very good.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

My husband and I had a excellent meal here tonight. The service and food were second to none. The staff were wonderful. Excellent menu, with plenty to choose from. Prices were reasonable as well. Very good portion sizes.
The only down side was that it wasn't very warm in there, and the toilets were freezing.
I would go again when visiting the area, but would make sure I wore warmer clothes next time.

The food at la vela was very good. I had pizza which was baked in an oven in front of me. The service was excellent and very quick. The price was ideal.

“Good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

Good food but be prepared for a bit of a wait on the weekends.
They were very helpful but we have been there 3 or 4 times now and each time had to wait a while to get our food.
Worth the wait but you need to go there knowing that so you are not disappointed!

“Great Italian”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Great food - great atmosphere - lovely staff - service can be a little slow when busy but hey drink some more Chianti Classico (Nice but £20-00 per bottle). The food is authentic - tasty and good portions - the atmosphere is lively and can be a little noisy - really enjoyed that - felt like Rome / Sorrento but maybe not the place for a really quiet intimate meal.
